  49. Perth Pete on January 2, 2023 at 2:37 am

    Come on spill the beans on Chris’s departure. I am guessing:- money, power, personalities, family + job commitments. Chris will be missed 😭



  50. Tomáš Vít on January 2, 2023 at 2:37 am

    Oh Chris, that’s a shame, I was always looking forward to the next show. But life is change. — Thank you! Which direction will you take, if it’s not a secret? 🚵
